HIMLEY Cricket Club's young guns and stalwarts were honoured at the recent Midlands Club Cricket Conference annual dinner in Edgbaston.

On the playing side, Jamie Turner – currently playing in Australia – and Ryan Brown shared the MCCC's Under 21 Cricketer of the Year award for their performances in the Birmingham and District Premier League, while Ollie Westbury scooped the Alec Hastilow Trophy as the most promising Under 16.

Among the administrators, Greg White, creator and organiser of the annual Black Country T20 Floodlit competition – a format which has subsequently spread to several areas – was honoured for raising the profile of club cricket in the Black Country.

Himley Juniors' chairman Guy Whittaker picked up the Halesowen Trophy for his contribution to junior cricket over the years.

And club treasurer Steve Walker brought home the Tiny Wildsmith Club Person of the Year award for the work he continues to put back specifically into Himley but more generally the sport he loves.
